Bolivia Is Home To "The World's Largest Mirror"

By

Breathtaking compilation of timelapse shots from Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia aka “The world’s largest mirror.” The salt flat is the remnants of a prehistoric lake that went dry leaving behind a 11,000 sqkm landscape of bright-white salt and rock formations. When it rains, a thin layer of water creates reflections that are nothing short of surreal. Bucket list thing to witness for sure.

“Reflections from Uyuni is a Time-lapse short film that shows the intrinsic beauty of the sea salt of Uyuni and the province of Potosí in Bolivia. The reflections produced by the water flooding in the rainy season, are the main protagonist Enrique Pacheco´s camera, who invites us to dream with impossible images from another world, where the sky meets the earth forming an infinite mirage. The sea salt of Uyuni with over 10,000km2 is the largest in the world. It is located in the province of Potosi, Bolivia, near the Andes, at an altitude of 3.656m. The Salar of Uyuni serves as a transport route through the Altiplano of Bolivia, but tourism has an increasingly more important role in the area.”
